Calcium Citrate with Vitamin D 300 Vegetarian caps by Life Extension
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body where it is primarily found in bones and teeth. In bone formation, calcium forms crystals that provide strength to maturing bone.
Calcium is needed for more than just healthy bones. It is also important for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, and sending messages through the nervous system.
Calcium is an essential mineral that is often inadequately supplied, inefficiently absorbed, or excreted faster than it is being assimilated. The citrate salt of calcium is well absorbed and utilized by the body. This is the form many doctors and nutritionists recommend. Calcium citrate dissolves easily even if one doesn’t have much stomach acid. Many people naturally produce less acid as they age, so calcium citrate is a good choice for older adults. Also critically important is the addition of vitamin D3.
Calcium supplements are best taken with meals. They should always be taken with a full glass of water, juice, or other liquid to enhance solubility. Calcium and other minerals are best not taken with fiber, because fiber can interfere with their absorption. If calcium-containing formulas are taken only once daily, they may be best taken in the evening.
Suggested Use: Take one to seven capsules daily with food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Check the calcium content of other supplements you are taking to determine how much additional calcium should be supplemented.
